Where's that? I was wondering if it was the new one to the west of Sutton Coldfield but I don't recall one there previously.

WSM ? Weston-Super-Mare ??

Cannot remember if I've already put up a figure for January registrations. So here goes and cancels any previous guess I may have made for January.

1111... Nice easy number to remember.

JANUARY 2020 GUESSES

Suddenly there is a new target for 2020 of 30,000 cars - take all the record number of cars sold last year, double it, and add another third of 2019 sales.

Last year's 754 wouldn't be enough, but how are we going to do against last month's 1,702? 30,000 a year is an average of 2,500 a month!

We know that of all the EVs ordered, 659 were delivered last year. It seems more than one dealership may have handed over more than a dozen this month, but then, with a backlog of probably more than a couple of thousand,it's probably what you'd expect.

First guesses:

Thanks. I've added your guess. MG is going to overtake Mitsubishi emphatically if DG's target is realistic.

Whilst there was no dealer listed at Weston Super Mare in 2010, K&R Motors of Taunton were north of the station, joining in March 2015 and leaving before 2019, while new dealers Howards are also north of the station but further east.
Howards Weston Super Mare has also entered the building. What branch was there? Did it not go onto the list?

As for Weston Super Mare, I always think of it as a kind of black and white place exemplified by the lines on the pier

"Why do people go to the sea to die?"
"I suppose it's a kind of last resort"

Interesting views.
It is the town second only to Bournemouth with the highest elderly population. It is however gaining a reputation as a new Brighton. There is a thriving LGBTQ+ community. UK Pride is based there next year. There is also an RAF airshow, sand sculptures and high mound motocross on the beach. It is brilliant for dog walkers and now has the return of MG. The dealership Howards sold MG until 2011 then closed in favour of KIA and Citroen. The site has expanded year on year and now the final MG signs are going up.
I do an mg run out to the Cheddar gorge and back. (the mendips) A great little run finishing at the helicopter museum. The Brendons and the Quantocks are not far away either.
